Alikes beach, Zakynthos Island

The beach of Alykes is one of the best, if not the best, beaches of the island. It is found some 17,5 kilometers Northwestern to the town of Zakynthos, in front of the homonymous settlement and tourist resort. Both the beach and the settlement have been named after the saltpans, which used to be, and still exist, in the coastal area.

If you choose Alykes for your holidays, you will find several hotels of all categories, studios and rooms to let for accommodation, both within the village and in the area around. Most of them are open from April or May until October. If you prefer a more casual staying, a big camping with full facilities is available.

The beach is sandy, long and very well organised with facilities for swimming and sunbathing and many sea sports to choose from. If you are fan of wind surfing you will discover that the open sea in front of the beach is ideal for this fascinating sport.

You will enjoy swimming and sunbathing at the excellent, long sandy beach of the settlement, very well organised with sea sport facilities and crystal clear sea.

Food is good here, as it is all over the island; the taverns and restaurants of the village offer fresh fish and a variety of local dishes and Greek and International cooking. The main road of the settlement is full of bars and cafes for amusement and nightlife. You will also find several gift shops.

If you are...bored of swimming (although this is pretty impossible) or the weather is not suitable for swimming, you may spend your time visiting the area around. It is worth seeing many things, f first of all it is the excellent environment: there is a small river flowing in the beach of the settlement with a very interesting stone bridge with five arches.

You may also enjoy an excursion to the scenic village of Katastari (1250 permanent residents) at a distance of 2 kilometers western to Alykes: situated within an overgrown environment with vineyards and olive trees, the village offers a marvelous view of the beach of Alykes.

Don’t miss to visit the interesting Folk Museum at Pigadakia, some 3,5 kilometers at the Southeast. You will see a rich collection of traditional house ware, along with tools and equipment of old professions.

If you are interested in old Monasteries, you should visit the Holy Monastery of Aghios Ioannis Prodromos (St. John the Baptist), established in the 17 th century; it is an ideal place to take photos, as from here you will have an excellent view of the cove and the blue sea, usually very calm.

In case of health problems, a local Medical Center is available at Katastari, at a distance of 2 kilometers western to Alykes.

Access from the town of Zakynthos (17,5 kilometers far away) is possible by taxi and by rented or private car and motorbikes. At the eastern part of the settlement within the small cove, you will find a safe marina for small tourist yachts and fishing boats.
